SQL Saturday 28 Baton Rouge and Ask the Experts

, 2010-08-02

The second annual SQL Saturday Baton Rouge event is coming up in less than two weeks!  Have you registered?

I’m honored to be speaking at this event again this year.  I’ll be presenting an introductory SSIS class (one of the 7:30 early bird sessions).  Later in the morning I’ll be delivering a talk on expressions and configurations in SSIS, one of my favorite topics.

This event will feature a new track that has not been tried at a SQL Saturday event yet, at least as far as I know.  Patrick LeBlanc, the event organizer (and recent MVP awardee!) added a series of sessions entitled “Ask the Experts”, in which attendees can sit down with experts in a particular discipline and discuss just about anything.  Among the experts participating are Steve Jones, Denny Cherry, Kevin Boles, Bryan Smith from Microsoft, and others.  I will be cohosting the SSIS/ETL/Data Warehouse hour with Steve Simon, so please stop by if you want to talk about anything BI related, or if you just want to say hello.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
